Curriculum Topics

The curriculum offered in Enniskillen Integrated Primary School encompasses 
all elements of the Revised Northern Ireland Curriculum and is designed to 
give a broad and balanced education to all children and to present all children

Annual Pupil Profile Report before the end of each school year. This replaces 
the traditional annual school report.
